TVGN ANNOUNCES NEW ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING FOR ITS FALL 2013 LINEUP

"Mother of All Talent" and "Tequila Sisters" Reality Series, Plus Television Projects with Talk Show Host Wendy Williams And Country Music Superstar John Rich, Set to Debut

LOS ANGELES - July 17, 2013 - TVGN (TV Guide Network) today announced two new unscripted series and two new celebrity-driven projects as part of the original programming that will premiere on its fall 2013 schedule.

The new programming adds to the momentum generated when the network recently began airing THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS (weeknights at 7:00 PM, ET/PT) and BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK (weeknights at 12:00-2:00 AM, live ET/delayed PT with special time on Thursday nights at 1:00 AM, live ET/delayed PT), which bookends the network's primetime schedule with two fan-obsessed series all summer.

TVGN's new original series and projects scheduled to premiere in fall 2013 include:

MOTHER OF ALL TALENT: This eight-episode docu-series follows the dynamic mother-daughter duo Nikki and Lorri, who have built one of the nation's leading talent agencies for kids straight from their quirky hometown in Staten Island, N.Y. This comedic yet aspirational series will capture what it takes to find and manage children in showbiz, while also contending with overly ambitious stage parents. Mother Nikki can be blunt and overbearing, while daughter Lorri always makes things right for the clients. Managing kids is a strange and demanding business. The jobs are real, the competition is stiff and the stakes are high. MOTHER OF ALL TALENT is produced by Jarrett Creative ("Boston's Finest") with Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna-Jarrett as Executive Producers.

TEQUILA SISTERS: Old-world family values and new-generation ideals collide in this eight-episode docu-soap series that follows the real lives of the Marins, an affluent, multi-generational Hispanic family living in Southern California. The show follows Mexican-born family patriarch and tequila entrepreneur Bill and his wife Lori, as they raise four beautiful daughters - Jen, Lauren, Jackie and Catherine - while fighting to pass along traditional values of family and marriage when faced with the seductions of Hollywood lifestyle. The girls, all in their 20s, try to find their independence while facing questions of assimilation, boyfriends and dating, sibling rivalries and changing economic times for the family. The show spotlights the dynamics and drama of being a Marin, which can be explosive and combative at times, but always rooted in love. TEQUILA SISTERS is produced by Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate with Eli Frankel ("Amazing Race," "Braxton Family Values" and "American Chopper") as Executive Producer.

WENDY WILLIAMS PROJECT (WORKING TITLE): The vivacious, buzz-making talk show host, TV personality and New York Times bestselling author Wendy Williams give an inspiring look behind the curtain at her personal life during the most challenging period in her career. Viewers will follow Wendy as she embarks on her Broadway debut in the musical production of "Chicago" and prepares for her role as the prison matron Mama Morton. The cameras will also capture Wendy at the taping of her daily talk show, "The Wendy Williams Show," which has been picked up through the 2016-2017 season and taping at the same time as her Broadway rehearsals. Set to air this fall on TVGN, the WENDY WILLIAMS PROJECT is a candid, up-close presentation of one of the most captivating personalities in show business today. WENDY WILLIAMS PROJECT is produced by Wendy Williams Productions with Wendy Williams, Kevin Hunter, Lisa Knapp and Jill Ramsey as Executive Producers.

JOHN RICH PROJECT (WORKING TITLE): GRAMMY-nominated country music sensation, John Rich (2011 winner of "Celebrity Apprentice," judge on "Nashville Star" and one half of country's rockin' duo, Big & Rich) - whose on-screen personality and charisma is as magnetic as his music - is the star and host of a primetime television project that is one part talk, one part reality and all parts Nashville. Filmed on location at "Mount Richmore," John's home which overlooks Nashville, TN, this primetime show will feature live performances, celebrity interviews, surprise guests and lots of audience interaction in a loose, party atmosphere. Viewers will be invited to jam sessions, as well as an intimate look at John's life in the country music capital of the world. Scheduled to air this fall on TVGN, the JOHN RICH PROJECT is produced by 25/7 Productions with David Broome (creator of "The Biggest Loser"), Yong Yam and Marc Oswald as Executive Producers.
